Each year, the City has remembered the victims and honored the heroes of September 11, 2001. This year, the City is hosting its first annual “September 11th 5K Remembrance” on Sunday, September 9 at 8 a.m. Participants will start and finish at the September 11th Memorial site at the Northwest Regional Library.
Participants may pre-register for $10 at City Hall. Registration forms will be available at City Hall, City Hall in the Mall and online at www.CoralSprings.org/5K.. Otherwise, registration will begin at 6:30 a.m. before the 5K begins for $15. Registration will be free for children under 12. Cash or checks made payable to the ‘City of Coral Springs 9-11 Memorial Fund’ will be accepted. No credit card payments will not be accepted.
All proceeds will go toward future September 11th Memorial services and toward maintenance of the Memorial site. No bikes, skates or pets are permitted during the 5K.
Then, on Tuesday, September 11 at 6 p.m., the City will honor the victims by laying a wreath at the Library, followed by a tribute to Police, Fire and the Armed Forces. Refreshments will be served after the event.
